The Roman Aqueduct
The Aqueduct (2nd-3rd century A.D.) is an important technical achievement with its arches preserved in the site of Lambou Miloi and in particular in Moria (6 km from Mitilini), reminding of Classical times. It is constituted from large blocks of stones, pillars, abacuses and arches, which are combined to an entity, similar to a propylaeum of a classical temple or palace. Its location starts from the foot of the mountain Olympos and covers a distance of 26 km, and either through underground earthen conduit, channel carved on the rocks, or arches, it provided Mytilene with abundant water. The technicians had given a particular inclination to the water???s long course. It was distributed with conduits to the public drinking fountains of the city, to the baths and the villas from the cistern of Mitilini.
